I had a VB project file and I placed Toolbar and button in the project.  In Button I placed two buttonmenus.  But I need to place some icon related to the same Button menu. Just like MSWord 97 button menu.

How can I place it in the ButtonMenu.

Many Thanks in advance for the advise.

Best Regards

Suresh Kumar S.

This is not an answer as such, but I don't think that you can easily do this. The buttonmenu items do not have an icon/picture property that you can set. I guess there may be an API method but again the API method I have used for normal menu items doesn't work with buttonmenus as they do not have a .hWnd property.

For this purpose I use Objective Tollkit X from Stingray Software.
This extends your toolbar (and even normal menus) so you can add icons to it.
